I would like to first say thank you so much for reading this post and would appreciate any advice that will be given, either bad or good.
Due to loan repayment coming up soon, I decided to accept a position as a nurse on the med surg floor. I never liked working med surg and had only wanted to work in NICU! I was desperate!
I am currently doing orientation as a new grad for two days with all new grads coming from all units. Most of them are coming from icu,ER, and women's services.
My question is that would it look really bad if I went to HR and ask if I can be hired as a NICU nurse instead of med surg or ask for a PRN position that they have available while working on the med surg unit.
There are currently 5 positions available for NICU in this hospital for new graduates.
Please let me know if I should just suck it up and stay with a med surg position and hopefully transfer in a year or go to HR and request for a transfer.
